Value, Selection & Service That's Worth The Drive!

M Is For Moet & Chandon


M is for Moet and Chandon (Producer of the most imported Champagne in the US)

Moet and Chandon are best known in the US for their Champagnes “White Star” and “Dom Perignon”. They have ceased production of the wine known as “White Star” and have changed the style and rebranded it “Imperial” which is what their non-vintage cuvee had always been known as everywhere else in the world. It was called “White Star” in the U.S. because of the M. Hommel Wine Company in Sandusky, Ohio who became famous with their “White Star” American champagne.


This sparkling wine was used extensively throughout the United States to christen ships and as “The” celebratory drink for those who desired bubbles. Probably the only wine word ‘borrowed’ by the French from the Americans.


O is for Le Mesnil-sur-Ogier (Home to the Grand Cru Champagne vineyard owned by Krug)

This top rated vineyard in the town of Mesnil-sur-Ogier is only 4.5 acres. Overlooked by the village church and protected by her walls since 1698, this vineyard is one of very, very few vineyards still planted on native root-stock. One of the rarest Champagnes in the world.


Taittinger (Producer of one of my favorite Champagnes, Taittinger, Comtes De Champagne)

A Comtes de Champagne is rare. The criteria chosen for its production eliminate the possibility for a large-scale yield. Since its first cuvee in 1952, only 30 vintages have seen the light of day. Among these, several have become legendary and today can only be tasted through words.


Henriot (Another great Champagne)

Founded officially in 1808 and became the official Champagne of the Dutch, Austrian, and Hungarian courts. I needed and ‘H’ for mother.


E is for Epernay (A major Center for Champagne production.)

Epernay is the city in which most of the major Champagne houses are located. Perrier-Jouet, Moet et Chandon, Pol Roger, Heidsieck & Co. Monople, all call Epernay their home.


R is for Reims (The largest city in Champagne)

Pommery, Veuve Cliquot-Ponsardin, Taittenger, Roederer, Henriot and Mumm all call Reims home. This is the prettiest city to visit in Champagne. According to legend, Reims was founded by Remus, the brother of the mythical founder of Paris, Romulus. The city was 80% destroyed in the First World War by German Artillery and was rebuilt in an eclectic style including many Art Deco facades. The Notre-Dame Cathedral of Reims was badly hit having received some 300 shells, but has been restored to its former beauty.
